gun violence in america, including martin o'malley, the governor of maryland, and michael bloomberg, mayor of new york city, co-chair of the mayor's against illegal guns coalition. that is at 9:00 a.m. on c-span 2. now we are going to the democratic line, murray, from brooklyn, n.y. caller: good morning. the last two comments that you read and the vice-president _ my point. we need to look at individual -- underscore my point. we need to look at individual responsibility and gun violence. people who feel they have the right to own guns or published media to -- which shows violence have a firm foundation, but the but -- but the foundation that they cannot stand on is that we must consume this type of material. individual responsibility means do not buy it. if we do not buy it, do not patronize it, it goes out of business. it does not come to a matter of the right to have certain types of media. if we as a consumer do not buy, do not consume, do not patronize this type of media, these type of outlets will of course either have to take their business in another direction or go out of b
